This is my first post in the forum, as I am new to knitting and to this page, which I have started loving immediately (it's so useful!).
So far I have made a scarf in ribbing, which has gone pretty well, so now i would like to start a new project a bit more complicated.
I have been looking at patterns and I am in love with one to make mittens, it seems pretty basic so I think it will be good for a beginner like me... but after having a look at some patterns for mittens I have a question: do I need to know how to knit in the round and use circular needles if i want to knit something like a hat, mittens or socks? Or can I just knit them using regular needles?
For the moment I am just learning with usual needles and the thought of circular needles scares me!
